It is so easy to make excuses to avoid exercising, but I try very hard to make myself get up and move more. I've added regular dog walks and neighborhood bike rides to my routine, but some days I'll sit here and work for hours before realizing I haven't even stood up. Jawbone UP from Best Buy is helping me to make positive changes in my life.
Quite simply, the Jawbone UP is a personal trainer (that won't yell at you) in the form of an electronic wristband. UP is a system that takes a holistic approach to a healthy lifestyle. The wristband tracks your movement and sleep in the background. The app displays your data, lets you add things like meals and mood, and delivers insights that keep you moving forward. UP tracks my motion, distance, location and speed for efficient monitoring of my workout, plus measures steps taken and calories burned to help me keep track of my progress.
It's so easy to use. I took my Jawbone UP out of the package, removed the cap and plugged it into my phone. I downloaded the free app, added my account and let UP charge so I could wear it. The wristband actually holds a charge for up to 10 days. I plugged my UP into my phone every morning and evening to update my account and see how well I did meeting my goals. UP is water-resistant up to 3.3' and can be used in most weather conditions.
It's a great quality product and I've noticed that even just wearing it reminds me to get up and move more often, although there is a built-in reminder too. It comes in lots of colors so you can find your personal style and start making changes to become healthier. A number of people have asked me where I got my new wristband and they were intrigued when I told them more about it. Plus, I've lost six pounds since I started wearing my UP! How's THAT for a recommendation?
Live Better. Start Now. Jawbone UP. Track your sleep activity, steps, calorie intake and more with the Jawbone UP wrist sensor and free mobile app. UP gives you meaningful, personalized insights so you can make lasting improvements to your everyday life. Shop for it at Best Buy.

  1. UP sounds perfect. I have my fitbit that I put on when I feel like walking, but this sounds like it has a few different added bonuses. Unfortunately, I've spent all the money I should at Best Buy for now so I will have to wait to get it.
